4 Things You Should Avoid to Prolong Hair Color:
- POOLS/CHLORINATED WATER: Not only does chlorine strip your hair of its natural oils, but it can leave it super dry & prone to breaking AND it can affect your color too- causing it to fade and even discoloration :0 Chlorinated water can also dull your hair and cause overall damage to hair health :(
- SALT/OCEAN WATER: This one might seem obvious now that you see it on the list, but many of us don't always think of the ocean causing this problem- but it can definitely affect your dye job, plus your hair & scalp health! Not only does it cause major dryness, but it can fade color and cause oxidization, which means discoloration is a possibility as well!
- PROLONGED SUN EXPOSURE:Yup! This is a BIG factor that will affect your hair color- especially during the warmer spring and summer months when we tend to spend more time outdoors. Try wearing a hat or a sun protection product [that contains UV protectors] on the hair when experiencing prolonged sun exposure- especially within the first 72 hrs. of your coloring session or you might experience fading and lightening of your new shade :0
- HEAT STYLING: Unfortunately, this is true! It turns out, that due in part to recent research [ and probably a bit of common sense ;)! ] this has been found to be a culprit to the cause of discoloration with your hair color. Light-colored hair in particular, is subject to this type of vulnerability giving it an unsightly yellowish hue :( Try putting the temp at 325 degrees F or below and also apply a heat-protecting product to hair before utilizing a heat-styling tool.
